RELIGIOUS violence may erupt in the country if police continue hunting the ex-husband and youngest daughter of M. Indira Gandhi, warned the Malaysian Association of Muslim Scholars (PUM).

  • Well, Sir, try pronounce love, humanity and justice in Islam instead of voicing a threat such as this. Your concern shows nothing but yourself having the wish for violence to happen.

  • PUM should be disbanded and labelled as terrorist. Issuing threats and creating disharmony in the guise of religion. The Counter Terrorist Police Force should act on this group. This devilish group are hiding under the umbrell of the Islam religion and purposey hooking up a pretex to stirr up mayhem and create fear. Another ploy to disrupt the GE14.
